My black is beautiful 

I have learned that my blackness is a privilege and a blessing. I have grown to understand that not everyone would be able to handle all that goes along with having this beautiful skin. I am wonderfully and beautifully made this way because my creator knew that I would be strong enough to handle the good, the bad and all the ugly that comes along with it; and I will continue to work hard so that other men and women who look like me understand the same. Being black/brown is a blessing not a curse.

About IamPhillyPhil

I'm a true Florida Boy born and raised. I spent my elementary, middle and highschool years in the same southwest Florida town I was born in. So I decided that before 2012 was over I would move to New York City to see what else was out there and to chase my dreams. That's exactly what I did! I landed and great job with a Non-Profit youth development organization and made the move to the Big Apple. My days here so far have been full of many different adventures and I'm loving every minute of it! This blog is not only to document those adventures, but to hopefully share them as well.
